NOVEMBER 23rd 2004
Unfortunately The Independents were in a accident on Friday night (November 19). As they were travelling to Bradford their van hit some black ice and turned over. The most seriously hurt were the driver who had to go to hospital with head injuries and Willy, The Independents guitarist, who broke his arm in two places. This has inevitably caused The Independents to cancel their European tour. We wish The Independents well, hope they have a safe journey home, and that all involved recover quickly.

The Independents were one of the late Joey Ramone's favourite bands... and they're about to tour the UK & across Europe, for the first time ever, during November & December!
